Comments about Black Diamond Cobra Ice Tool:

This is an elegant ice tool with a great swing. The carbon fiber shaft dampens the shock and makes for a solid hit. The shaft clearance easily clears big ice features. The only complaint is the smooth upper shaft is a bit thin and I wrapped it with grip tape to fill it out and make for easier handling.

Nice Tool

Pros

  • Good Balance
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Handle is narrow

Best Uses

  • Ice Climbing

Comments about Black Diamond Cobra Ice Tool:

These are nice tools. The balance is great. Most of the weight is in the end which makes it easy to swing and the carbon fiber absorbs alot of the vibration compared to aluminum tools.
I'm just getting into ice climbing and have used several different tools trying to find the right ones. These are it.
The only bad thing is the handles are narrow for larger hands. I've built my grips up with tape and that seems to help.

Comments about Black Diamond Cobra Ice Tool:

The only con i have encouintered is that it needs a better upper grip. For a axe that is probably the best one to date its strange that it was not thought of.
